This field is for if you are playing on your own porch or for someone expecting you to play there. They must sign up using the porch host sign up form before they will appear in this list.

This is an option for those who know where they want to perform. If you do not have a preferred location, please leave this blank

shareable gear

As this is a community music festival, we encourage folks to share gear. Once we put together a schedule we will put you in contact with people performing on the same porch as you so you can take over coordination from there

What gear do you need to borrow for your set?
What gear are you willing to lend on the day of the festival?
